We are extremely proud to announce that the newest Behemoth album, Evangelion turned gold in Poland! The album had its premiere on August, 7th and debuted on the second place on the Polish charts. During the next 3 weeks the album was located at no. 1 in Poland.
Front man, Nergal comments: "Wow...big fuckin' WOW! What else can I say? This is a HUGE day for Behemoth. From the bottom of our hearts we'd like thank all the people who bought the record and made it happen! Also massive thanks go to Mystic Prod. in Poland for giving us so much support and strength! You are more than awesome! Now we are stuck somewhere in the Austrian mountains, the tour is doing great even though most of us are battling with the flu. I'm on antibiotics and steroids so I can't even celebrate tonight with the bottle of Jack D. in my hands…I just hope some of you can do it for me? Haha…Once again, thank you for all the support! Cheers!"
Evangelion also achieved a great success in the US, where it debuted at #55 on the Billboard Top 200, #5 on the Billboard Hard Music Albums and #6 on the Billboard Independent Albums.
Behemoth is currently promoting Evangelion in Europe on the "Evangelia Europa" tour. They'll be back on tour in North America sometime in 2010!
